HEARRT (the healthcare environmental awareness and resource reduction team) Midwest connects healthcare professionals to encourage and support sustainability actions that improve environmental and community health and, reduce costs.
After bringing together healthcare facility representatives, vendors, local/state agencies, and the MN Hospital Association for a decade (2000-2010), HEARRT has been resuscitated to deliver advocacy, education, networking opportunities and support to facilities working to achieve the triple aim using sustainability. The recovery team is comprised of staff from CentraCare Health, Fairview Health Services, Hennepin County Medical Center, HealthPartners, Mayo Clinic, Ridgeview Medical Center, the MN Hospital Association, the MN Technical Assistance Program, the VA Medical Center and Zimmer Environmental Improvement.
